"Trivia question: What is the most cited work in the mathematical literature? With an estimated 40,000 citations, the Handbook of Mathematical Functions may well be it. Edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene Stegun and released by the National Bureau of Standards in 1964, the Handbook was the result of a ten-year project to compile essential information on the special functions of applied mathematics (e.g., Bessel functions, hypergeometric functions, and orthogonal polynomials) for use in applications. The Handbook remains highly relevant today in spite of its age... The number of citations yearly has been steadily increasing since 1964." - Ronald Boisvert et al, "Handbook for the Digital Age," Notices of the AMS, August 2011. http://www.ams.org/notices/201107/rtx110700905p.pdf, accessed 9/12/2012

After taking a look at the EPUB version, I would recommend not downloading it. The OCR scan just created a mash of numbers, with an occasional scan image of a section table of contents. This EPUB is mostly useless.
